Bands/artists I quit caring about

Why I cared in the first place:

...the albums I listened to before these were simply Misfits retreads & therefore not at all noteworthy. If I want to hear Misfits I have their albums. :P

Why I quit caring:

...dear god they suck now. Oh yeah, and shortly after they'd toured for Sing the Sorrow I heard that they refuse to play cities if they don't sell enough merch when they play them. Which must make their fans in those cities really respect them, yeah?

Why I cared in the first place:

...these 2 albums made me aware of their existence. Between them I worked my way backward through their discography and found much to love.

Why I quit caring:

...and onward, mostly because these & subsequent albums seemed to be written solely to make videos for each song (especially with regard to the lyrics).

Why I cared in the first place: Everything they'd recorded & released up through this album:

...as well as their excellent live shows. Up through this album they were the best punk band I'd heard in AGES.

Why I quit caring:

...both of which are overproduced & lack the soul that their previous releases overflowed with. The songs I saw them play live off New Wave when they toured behind it sounded just as forced live as they did on record.

Why I cared in the first place:

...I loved his whole "the year 2000 will bring the end of the world" thing, as well as his vocal delivery and mix of humor and darkness.

Why I quit caring:

...turns out the only thing that ended in 2000 was him putting out music worth hearing. (And Mariah Carey? Seriously?)

...as well as their live shows, which for a while were good enough to encourage me to pick up each of these albums when they toured behind them.

Why I quit caring:

...and the fact that the last time or 2 I saw them live they sucked.

Why I quit caring:

...this includes Axl waiting so many years to release it that I'd long quit caring if he ever did, as well as him running off Slash, Izzy, and Duff, all of whom were integral to the GNR sound. Without them it's just The Axl Rose Show.

Why I quit caring:

...plus the fact that Page Hamilton is the only original member of their revived line-up. These albums & any others he's recorded under the Helmet moniker since should have been released under his name instead, as he's slowly ruining their legacy.

Why I quit caring:

...plus while they played one of the best shows I've ever seen in 1997, they sucked at Lollapalooza in 2003 as well as when they toured with NIN in 2009. Also, Perry Farrell has lost his voice thanks to all the drugs & alcohol he's ingested over the years, which makes their live shows especially depressing.

I've seen them perform live 3 or 4 times, and they've mostly been boring. Plus, their albums since En Esch & Gunter Schulz left the band have been a mixed bag.

...which I still say is a Great album, and the only one worth listening to from start to finish.

Why I quit caring:

...though they'd been on a decline leading up to Issues. Their live shows had been good though, which kept me interested. This album & the songs I've heard since have completely killed any interest I once had.

...if only the songs contained within were as interesting as the cover. But no, instead she decided she wanted to make dumb, soulless pop music. I still cringe whenever I hear anything off this album.

Why I cared in the first place:

...which was the first album of theirs I heard. Further investigation led me to appreciate the albums that preceded it, and I even liked One Hot Minute and Californication.

Why I quit caring:

...the only good thing to come out of By the Way was their live show when they toured behind it, during which they free-form jammed between many of their songs. As for the other album pictured above, that's by far the worst double-album I've ever heard. It's less an album than a collection of songs they threw together without trimming the crap first. Not that I could find a single good song among them, mind you.

Why I cared in the first place:

...plus the fact that their members were also in Ministry and Front 242, and collaborated with Pigface and KMFDM. It was industrial music, but more fun than serious.

Why I quit caring:

...which isn't so much bad as forgettable, but I saw them on tour behind it after over 10 years of wishing I could see them and it was Terrible.

Why I cared in the first place:

...which is still my favorite album out of theirs.

Why I quit caring:

...which was their second album after reuniting (sans the deceased Dwayne Goettel). Add to this awful album a pair of dull live shows of theirs I sat through (though when I saw them tour after they'd first reunited they were Awesome), as well as a realization that the older I get the less appreciation I have for the majority of their music. At this point I've narrowed down the songs of theirs I enjoy listening to to about 2 albums worth of music spread across their discography.

Why I cared in the first place:

...which is the sonic equivalent of a horror film, and one of the most honestly angry albums I've ever heard (as opposed to vocalists who scream with no real emotion behind it). Plus their live shows blew me away.

Why I quit caring:
I bought the 2 albums that followed their debut and enjoyed some songs while being bored with others, and their live shows were still incredible. I think the mediocrity of Stone Sour partly helped turn me off them (and when Corey sings sometimes on Slipknot songs it recalls that crap), as well as some of their fans I've encountered, & the fact that the only album I've listened to outside of the first month I had it is their debut.

...though I prefer Ungod and Darkest Days. Their sound may not have been very original, but they wrote some great break-up songs.

Why I quit caring:

...and apparently so did everyone else because they broke up after touring behind this piece of crap.

...and everything between those 2 albums.

Why I quit caring:

...because let's face it, without David Lee Roth Van Halen doesn't matter. I suppose you could say though that I never quit caring about the original line-up considering I went to see them in concert after DLR rejoined them (which was Awesome, by the way).

Why I quit caring:

...and everything after it. The Green Album has its moments, so it didn't initially turn me off of them...however, I haven't listened to that album in years now so maybe it's worse than I think it is. Also, I saw them in concert a few times and they bored the hell out of me.

Add items to section

Soon to join this list?

These are bands & artists I've loved for some time, but their last album was so disappointing I'm afraid they'll end up on this list in the future. For now I thought I'd put them in a separate section, since theoretically they could release a great album next time out that restores my faith in them.

Also in the case of The Dresden Dolls, MSI, and Tool the last time I saw them perform live they sucked compared to the other times I've seen them, which is also a strike against them. (Actually in Tool's case, they sucked the last 2 times I saw them live -both behind Lateralus- & I haven't bothered to see them again since, especially since they charge WAY too much for tickets.)

Once I was a fan of every band/artist on this list. Somewhere along the way, however, they turned me off from what they were doing & have never won me back.
